LA-based singer/songwriter and Producer Genevieve Artadi has announced her new record, Forever Forever, out March 17th, 2023 on Brainfeeder. To herald the announcement, she has shared the lead single and video, “Visionary.” Forever Forever is rooted in Jazz, but winds up with Alternative Rock or Avant-Pop accents.
With an accompanying video that celebrates ‘80s Hair Metal style, “Visionary” features solos from Pedro Martins (guitar), Chiquita Magic (synth bass), Christopher Fishman (piano), and Louis Cole and Daniel Sunshine doubling up on the drums.
It’s a celebration of love, expressing gratitude to ‘the other’ who was first to be brave enough to jump into a relationship when I had lost hope.
Artadi is known for involvement in KNOWER, Expensive Magnets, and her former band Pollyn, and she signed to Brainfeeder to release the solo album Dizzy Strange Summer in 2020. The following year she collaborated with Thundercat, Raedio, and Louis Cole on “Satellite Space Age Edition” for the Insecure Season 5 soundtrack (HBO).
Drawing on the spiritual teachings of Thích Nhất Hạnh, the Vietnamese Thiền Buddhist monk known as the “father of mindfulness”, Ram Dass (guru of modern yoga), Eckhart Tolle, and Jiddu Krishnamurti, Artadi reflects on her relationships, growing up, and her adventures in life on this new album.
‘Forever Forever’ is an album about the love I have for the people in my life, attempting to express with a lot of care different sides of it: reassurance, acceptance of change, ruptures, joy.
